This past week has been filed with preparing for and cleaning up after termite fumigation of the building in which we live. With all the clearing of pantry and cupboards and freezer, it was like moving, only without the reward of a new place. Guess I'm just not as flexible and energetic as I want to be, LOL.
However, being exhausted and sore and not sleeping perfectly while away from my own bed has led to some serious negativity. Being tired always does this to me, lately--makes it so easy to be grumpy and pessimistic: nothing looks rosy about my future, nor can I remember anything past except mistakes and failings.
Attitude adjustment was needed, big time! Which led to wondering how hang on to optimism better. How do people keep their faith alive--and especially, what could I learn from them that would help me when I'm feeling physically and mentally down.
So, here's the latest article from the Baha'i site at BellaOnline.com.

Meanwhile, do visit bahai.bellaonline.com for more about the Baha'i Faith and what it's like to live a Bahá'í life -- at least, what it's like for me...
